They should now start paying out Credit according to the definition of a Cobblestone if they are going to use RAC to determine the amount of processing done in GFLOPs.

Oh cool! No, I had not noticed that.

You've contributed about 2,889.25 credits per day (14.446 GFLOPS) to SETI@home recently. Thanks!

Yea I saw it today. I thought I had done some remarkable thing or something to warrant it LOL.
I'm putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all, I think, that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

It sort of shows me that for 4 times the GFLOPS I get 1 third of what I use to. :-(

The new home page doesn't have a donate button. I discovered this when I went to renew my green star. I couldn't find it in any of the drop down menus either. I had to do a site search to find it. Mission accomplished and hopefully the star will soon reappear.

Yes, your new star has appeared. For anybody else in the same predicament, you can always reach the donation page by clicking on a displayed green star - your own, if it's still there, or anybody else's.

I almost never visit the home page so I don't really know how this one is different. I don't recall what the old home page looked like.

Am I the only one who doesn't visit the home page?

If you were more obsessed about the server status you would. A little OCD goes a long way.

I think it was always under Project but it should appear in that list of bullet points on the main page in the near future. Thanks for pointing this out. :^)

The old page looks a lot like this http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/ at least until Beta is updated.

I woulda thunk the donate button would have been fixed during the outage.

Well it's been changed again as the GFLOPS has now been removed (possibly to remove proof of how much of a failure that CreditNew has been?).

Cheers.

I'm surprised that change was made but no donation in the bullet point list of how to help the project. If it isn't there, I read it as donations not being important, whereas in reality the project would not exist without them; they are very important. Perhaps it will be added later (I hope.)
